The Millvale Community Library makerspace is a vibrant place full of Maker camp activities this summer. Our free Maker camps include: art camp, music camp, fashion camp, Riverfront and environmental camp, space camp, and pottery camp. ( There are 10 slots available for each camp and registration fills up quickly for the camps).

The morning camp session is from 10 to noon with children ages 6 to 8. The afternoon camp session from 1 to 3 is for children ages 9 to 12. All children enjoy a free summer lunch from the PA State Department of Education through our participation in the summer meals program.  Children enjoy a great summer of making with Maker Education Director Roman Benty.

Millvale Library Executive Director Susan McClellan said’ “the summer camps are a fantastic learning experience for the children and also teaches them critical thinking skills, decision making skills, and life skills connecting them to a deeper learning experience. ” Example, children in sewing camp learn how to work with textiles, cut a pattern, sew the garment, and have their own fashion show the last day of camp.

The cost of the camps is offsets by grants. For more information, see www.millvalelibrary.org
